The hand-built racing bike is an homage to the Mercedes-AMG GT R and is available for order exclusively from the Rotwild sales department for €7109. The price is a reference to the lap time set by the Mercedes‑AMG GT R on the legendary Nordschleife circuit of the Nürburgring. The street-legal sports car completed the 22.8 kilometres of the Green Hell in a time of 7 minutes and 10.9 seconds.
The new Rotwild racing bike R.S2 Limited-Edition “Beast of the Green Hell” impresses in every aspect with state-of-the-art technology.
The hand-built frame features “Carbon Module Monocoque Technology” (MMT2), while “High Modulus” and “High Tenacity” fibresto provide outstanding rigidity and a significant reduction in weight. The result is a light frame with optimal rigidity and ideal damping properties. The specially shaped seat-stays significantly improve the damping comfort especially on long rides.
The 29‑inch Crankbrothers Cobalt 11 carbon wheels enable strong acceleration and improved braking deceleration. The unique design of the wheels keeps the rotating masses as low as possible and shifts the weight closer to the wheel centre. The twin-pair spoke design ensures the lateral rigidity of the wheels.
All other components of the racing bike such as the Shimano disc brakes or the Shimano drivetrain and shifting technology also meet the highest standards of bicycle racing. The bike offers its rider direct steering with a sporty seating position, good propulsion and high directional stability even during fast descents.
The Rotwild R.S2 Limited-Edition “Beast of the Green Hell” is the perfect piece of sports equipment for cycling enthusiasts who are looking for something extraordinary and love challenges.
The homage to the Mercedes-AMG GT R is the third bicycle model jointly presented by Mercedes-AMG and Rotwild. The full-suspension R.X45 AMG carbon fibre mountain bike entered the market in 2013. In 2015, the Rotwild GT S inspired by AMG followed, a mountain bike for the toughest off-road tracks.
